1883 Reichsrevolver
« on: January 05, 2015, 05:46:42 am »
Picked up my fourth, no, my fifth Reichsrevolver yesterday. I've parted with the others, since they were all projects and parts are a tough thing to find.  Walked into Cabelas yesteday and found a beauty. All matching civilian/officers model with period correct checkered grips.  Has a mirrors bore, so it should shoot well.

Thanks gentlemen!

I have a knack for finding these. This is the best one so far. I have a lead on another one but I won't be able to talk with the owner until April.

Mine is not pristine.   :(

But, it does have FIVE notches on the grip! 8)
